It’s impossible to love movies and TV shows without loving beautiful celebrities. They bring these stories to life and can make each scene positively sizzle.
Where do all of these beautiful people come from? In the case of the most lovely ladies in TV and film, many of them come from the Ukraine!
Chances are you didn’t know how many glamorous actresses were born in the Ukraine. But with our comprehensive list, you can find hottest stars to start binge-watching right away. Here are the top 10 most beautiful Ukrainian actresses.
Mila Kunis is probably the most familiar name on this list. Part of the reason why is that she has starred in so many different things.
She first became famous for her role as Jackie in That ’70s Show. She was just 14 years old when she landed the role on the hit sitcom. Kunis eventually made the move to film, starring in things ranging from awful (American Psycho 2) to sublime (Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Eventually, she gained widespread acclaim for roles in movies like Black Swan.
Over time, she never got too far from comedy, though. In addition to starring in movies like Ted, she has voiced Meg in Family Guy since 1999.
Milla Jovovich is another incredibly famous Ukrainian actress. While she has a list of film credits as long as your arm, she is mostly known for two things: her role as a manic “multi-pass” dream girl in The Fifth Element and her role as action heroine Alice in the Resident Evil film franchise.
What most of her fans don’t know, though, is that she has plenty of other skills. She has been a model, a fashion designer, and even a musician. In fact, she has provided music for many films, including the campy genre classic Underworld.
Olga Kurylenko has appeared in a number of high-profile Western hits. Perhaps her most famous role was as a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace. She also starred opposite Tom Cruise in Oblivion and opposite Rowan Atkinson in Johnny English Strikes Again.
In some ways, her early life prepared her for all of these globe-traveling roles. She was born in the Ukraine and modeled in Moscow before moving to Paris. Her film career took off from there, thanks to a role in the 2007 movie Hitman.
Kurylenko made headlines in March 2020 when she revealed she had been diagnosed with the COVID-19 coronavirus. But she posted on Instagram that she made a full recovery. “For one week I felt pretty bad and was mostly in bed, sleeping, with high fever and strong headache,” she wrote. “By the end of the second week I felt totally fine.”
Born in 1994, Anna Koshmal is one of the younger actresses on this list. However, it didn’t take long before she started making her mark on the acting world!
She made a splash as an actress when she was still a teenager thanks to her role in the TV comedy Svaty 6. From there, she continued to impress in roles on the TV satire Servant of the People and, more recently, the mini-series Vkus schastya.
Considering how much awesome stuff Anna has created from a young age, we look forward to seeing what this beautiful actress does next!
Ekaterina Kuznetsova is one of the best examples of a working actress. She has never been defined by any major scandals or drama. Instead, she has focused on creating a truly impressive body of work.
This beautiful actress has starred in a number of movies, including Voyna polov and Bystree, chem kroliki. However, she is primarily known for her many different TV roles. She has appeared in shows such as The Cycle, Give Me Sunday, Queen of Bandits, and many more!
Olga Sumska may not be a household name where you’re from. But over in the Ukraine, she is basically acting royalty!
In some ways, Olga was destined to be an actor. She comes from a family of actors and enrolled in the National University of Theater, Cinema and Television as soon as she could. Afterward, she launched a seriously impressive career.
Olga catapulted to mainstream status when she starred in the title role of the soap Roxelane. Not content to only be in front of the screen, she also helped voice Maleficent for the Ukrainian dub of Disney’s first Maleficent movie.
In 2009, she was awarded Ukraine’s highest honor for the performing arts, the honorary title People’s Artist of Ukraine. Like we said: acting royalty.
How beautiful is Inna Tsymbalyuk? So beautiful that she has been recognized by the entire world!
She was crowned Miss Ukraine Universe in 2006. That same year, she placed in the Top 20 of contestants in the Miss Universe pageant.
It didn’t take her too long to translate that beauty to the big and small screen. Starting in 2008, she began starring in movies like Novogodnyaya semeyka and Rzhevskiy protiv Napoleona. In between, she starred in great TV shows such as Tilky kokhannya.
Nadezhda Granovskaya (also known as Nadia Meikher) took the scenic route to the world of acting. For example, she began working in local theatre from a young age. It was in one of these theatre performances that she was discovered and recruited into the musical girl group Nu Virgos.
As part of Nu Virgos, she created awesome music including the hit album Popytka No. 5. She then became the TV host of a show called Incredible Love Stories. And while Granovskaya also branched into film, she continued to create music and even poetry on her own.
There is a secret to becoming an influential actor. Here it is: the exact roles that you star in don’t matter as much as having a prolific career. The more the public sees you, the more you can influence the public. And Maria Efrosinina figured that secret out long ago.
Rather than focusing on TV series or movie roles, she has crafted a relentless career as a television host. Over time, she has presented things like the 50th Eurovision Song Contest, the UEFA Euro 2012 play-offs drawing, and the talent show Fabrika Zirok.
Thanks to these roles, Maria has become one of the most influential women within the Ukraine.
Born in 1956, Natalya Sumskaya has had a longer career than many of the beautiful ladies on this list. Because of that, there are many awesome roles that she is now known for.
Throughout her long acting history, Natalya is most known for roles in Dudaryky, Zateryannye v peskakh, and Dlya domashnoho ohnyshcha. And while her most famous roles were back in the ’80s and ’90s, she has continued to stun in role after role.
Natalya starred in The Black Raven movie in 2019 and the TV show The Diners. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
